Parasites as biological tags for stock discrimination of marine fish: a guide to procedures and methods
The purpose of this paper is to provide a guide for parasitologists and fishery biologists to the use of parasites as biological tags for stock discrimination of marine fish. Key literature onExpand
Parasites as Pollution Indicators in Marine Ecosystems: a Proposed Early Warning System
There are good reasons for focusing on parasites in the search for indicators to monitor the effects of pollutants on marine organisms, particularly in parasites with complex life cycles, which have delicate free-living transmission stages which are highly sensitive to environmental change. Expand
Parasites as biological indicators of the population biology, migrations, diet, and phylogenetics of fish
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the response of the immune system to infectious disease. Expand
Parasites as indicators of water quality and the potential use of helminth transmission in marine pollution studies.
This chapter focuses on parasites as indicators of water quality and the potential use of helminth transmission in marine pollution studies, with much information on prevalence, intensity, mean intensity, relative density or abundance, and diversity. Expand
The parasite fauna of the atlantic cod, Gadus morhua L
This review is intended to increase awareness of the value of parasitological studies of the Atlantic cod, which has an exceptionally rich and varied parasite fauna compared with most other speciesExpand
Parasites as biological tags in population studies of marine organisms: an update
The work published over the past decade on the use of parasites as biological tags in population studies of marine fish, mammals and invertebrates, particularly on demersal fish, is reviewed. Expand
Stock identity of horse mackerel (Trachurus trachurus) in the Northeast Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea : Integrating the results from different stock identification approaches
Abstract Horse mackerel stock identification was carried out with the aim of obtaining management units that were meaningful biological entities and thus improving the management of the resource. TheExpand
Comparative susceptibility of native Scottish and Norwegian stocks of Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., to Gyrodactylus salaris Malmberg: Laboratory experiments
Abstract Salmon parr of each of three hatchery-reared stocks from the Rivers Shin and Conon in northeast Scotland, and from the River Lierelva in southeast Norway, were infected by exposing themExpand
Sea lice (Copepoda: Caligidae) on wild sea trout (Salmo trutta L.) in Scotland
The heaviest infection of sea trout with lice was recorded in the salmon farming areas of the west and north-west of Scotland, but no clear pattern emerged with levels of infection at single locations in relation to the proximity to the nearest salmon farm or with the pattern of infection (and larval production) within an adjacent salmon farm.

Anisakis spp. larvae (Nematoda: Anisakidae) from Atlantic horse mackerel: Their genetic identification and use as biological tags for host stock characterization
Abstract In the present study, data are reported on the use of Anisakis spp. larvae, genetically identified to species level, for stock identification of Atlantic horse mackerel, Trachurus trachurusExpand
